Stop Being Offended

The behaviour of others isn’t a reason to be immobilised. That which offends you only weakens you. If you’re looking for occasions to be offences, you’ll find them at every turn. This is your ego at work convincing you that the world shouldn’t be the way it is. But you can become an appreciator of life and match up with the universal Spirit of Creation. You can’t reach the power of intention by being offended. By all means, act to eradicate the horrors of the world, which emanate from massive ego identification, but stay in peace. As A Course in Miracles reminds us : Peace is God, you who are part of God are not at home except in his peace. Being offended creates the same destructive energy that offended you in the first place and leads to attack, counterattack, and war.

Reference : The Power of Intention. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

    I love this! I’ve been struggling with it because I live with people who are super negative and narcissistic. I try to do everything I can to help and be nice and they are constantly creating problems. Its gotten so bad that its making me physically ill. Nothing I do is right and they even go out of their way to make up stuff that “I did” but they clearly know its themselves. Any tips on how to remove my ego and deal with this would be appreciated! If not, I appreciate the read, it made me think!
